    Fundamental biological topics such as cell, cellular processes and genetics are very difficult for students, resulting in a lot of misunderstandings and misconceptions. With our research we wanted to find out what is the quality of knowledge in 13 and 15 year old students and what are the possible misconceptions that they hold. The study involved 87 pupils of primary school and high school. The questionnaire had 35 questions, including questions on the cytology and genetics, how students perceived biology, and questions on how they felt about this research. We found out that students don't have satisfactory knowledge and have a lot of misconceptions, which we hope can be corrected and improved with the new curriculum.
